Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Volcano
  • Igneous rock

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Basalt, Mantle, Lithosphere and Magmatism. The concepts of his Geochemistry study are interwoven with issues in Mantle plume, Mantle wedge and Island arc. His studies deal with areas such as Ocean island basalt and Mafic as well as Basalt.

His Mantle research includes themes of Flood basalt, Volcano, Amphibole and Hotspot. The various areas that Simon Turner examines in his Lithosphere study include Petrology, Plateau and Geophysics. His work deals with themes such as Magma chamber, Magma and Phenocryst, which intersect with Igneous differentiation.

His most cited work include:

  • Post-collision, Shoshonitic Volcanism on the Tibetan Plateau: Implications for Convective Thinning of the Lithosphere and the Source of Ocean Island Basalts (742 citations)
  • U-Th isotopes in arc magmas: Implications for element transfer from the subducted crust (630 citations)
  • Amphibole “sponge” in arc crust? (601 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Simon Turner mainly investigates Geochemistry, Mantle, Basalt, Crust and Partial melting. The Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Subduction and Mantle wedge. His study focuses on the intersection of Mantle and fields such as Lithosphere with connections in the field of Magmatism.

In his work, Amphibole is strongly intertwined with Volcanic rock, which is a subfield of Basalt. Simon Turner studied Partial melting and Trace element that intersect with Mineralogy. His Magma research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Plagioclase, Igneous differentiation and Silicic.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (66.07%)
  • Mantle (29.17%)
  • Basalt (22.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (66.07%)
  • Mantle (29.17%)
  • Magma (16.07%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Simon Turner spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Mantle, Magma, Volcano and Subduction. His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Rift and Oceanic crust. Simon Turner has researched Mantle in several fields, including Basalt, Eclogite and Petrology.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Dacite and Phenocryst. His Volcano research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pleistocene, Volcanism, Series and Earth science. His Crust study combines topics in areas such as Mantle wedge and Island arc.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Use of Hydrofluoric Acid Desilicification in the Determination of Highly Siderophile Element Abundances and Re‐Pt‐Os Isotope Systematics in Mafic‐Ultramafic Rocks (43 citations)
  • Boninite-like intraplate magmas from Manihiki Plateau require ultra-depleted and enriched source components. (26 citations)
  • The inception of plate tectonics: a record of failure (19 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Basalt
  • Volcano
  • Igneous rock

His primary areas of study are Geochemistry, Mantle, Subduction, Crust and Basalt. Specifically, his work in Geochemistry is concerned with the study of Zircon. His work on Metasomatism as part of general Mantle study is frequently linked to Plume, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His studies in Subduction integrate themes in fields like Gondwana, Isotopes of boron, Seamount and Archean. His study in Crust is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Andesite, Plate tectonics and Island arc. He has included themes like Andesites, Basaltic andesite, Magma and Phenocryst in his Basalt study.
